Alabama junior T Cam Robinson declared for the NFL Draft.
Robinson started for the Tide from the day he stepped on campus as a true freshman in 2014. The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder won the Outland Trophy (nation's best interior linemen) and the Jacobs Trophy (SEC's top blocker) this past season. His reputation exceeds his play at this point -- Pro Football Focus was a little down on his work in 2016 -- but the talent is very real. Robinson revealed Friday that he received a first-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. A top-10 possibility, Robinson's talent level, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt, is equal to or greater than that of Miami Dolphins first-round T Laremy Tunsil. Like Tunsil, Robinson has some character concerns. He was arrested in May on marijuana and weapon charges. The case was later dismissed. Jan 13 - 1:39 PM

A scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Alabama junior T Cam Robinson is "talented but he gets lazy."

Regarding Robinson's draft stock, another scout told MJS's Bob McGinn that "his issues are technical." Said that evaluator, "He is aggressive, big and physical, but he’ll whiff every now and then. All that can be corrected." The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder rebounded from a May arrest on marijuana and weapon charges to put in a 2016 campaign which ultimately netted him the Outland Trophy, awarded to the best interior lineman in the country.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson was named the winner of the Outland Trophy.

The Outland Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's best interior lineman. Robinson described the experience of winning the award as "surreal." The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder is the fourth Crimson Tide lineman to come away with the prestigious honor. An NFC scout said in late October that Robinson is "not perfect, but [is] going to be a good starter in the [NFL]."

An NFC scout says Alabama junior T Cam Robinson is "going to be a good starter in the league."

"People beat up Cam (Robinson) all the time but I wonder what they will say when they watch his film against (Texas A&M DE Myles) Garrett," he said. "He was good against Garrett. He's not perfect, but he's going to be a good starter in the league. I would probably try him on the right side." Added Lance Zierlein: "I'm one of those analysts who beat Robinson up a little bit in the privacy of my own film room because I want to see more growth and consistency from him as a pass protector. ... Robinson won't always be the cleanest from a technique standpoint when it comes to protecting the passer, but when teams turn on the Texas A&M game, he's going to earn praise for his work."

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson's superb play against Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett caused NFL.com's Lance Zierlein to reconsider him.

"While I expected Garrett to explode past Robinson with his combination of edge speed and inside spin moves, Robinson was almost always first with his hands, which helped him control the flow of his reps against Garrett," Zierlein wrote. "Robinson played with consistent balance and had an above-average game as a run blocker. Today's tape should make scouts (and his own coaches) much happier." To sprinkle just a few drops of cold water on this evaluation, Garrett wasn't 100-percent healthy on Saturday. Still, Robinson undoubtedly helped his cause.

Eleven NFL clubs will scout the Texas A&M-Alabama game in person.

As we speak, the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans are all in Tuscaloosa. Perhaps the biggest individual prospect matchup this weekend occurs between Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett and Alabama OT Cam Robinson. "A stout Alabama rushing attack will limit Garrett's pass-rushing opportunities, which will be his best chance to expose the area of Robinson's game that needs the most improvement," noted NFL Media.

Previously suspended junior T Cam Robinson lined up as the team's starting left tackle when Alabama opened fall practice.

Nick Saban stood by Robinson during each step of the process. The rest of the starters included left guard Lester Cotton, center Ross Pierschbacher, right guard Bradley Bozeman and right tackle Jonah Williams. There are a lot of questions surrounding Alabama's offense, outside of the receiver and tight end spots. Even with a new offensive line and stable of running backs, we all know Alabama will continue to control the game on the ground.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that the discipline for junior T Cam Robinson and junior CB Laurence Jones has been administered internally.

Signs have been pointing this way for some time -- particularly after Louisiana DA Jerry Jones declined to prosecute weapons and marijuana charges against Robinson and Jones last month following their May arrest in a West Monroe, Louisiana, park. Saban explained his decision not to levy suspensions, noting that "[b]oth players have done a significant amount of things to change their behavior whether it was police ride alongs, whether it was community service or juvenile groups that need positive role models and influence to make better choices and decisions." Given that the legal troubles have been put to rest and no suspensions are forthcoming, this story should more/less be considered a wrap. NFL teams will certainly be grilling Robinson about all of this after he declares for the draft, though, a decision which could well come in January.

The punishment Alabama administered to junior T Cam Robinson has been revealed.

Robinson and junior cornerback teammate Laurence Jones must: undergo weekly urine tests, have regular drug counseling, participate in monthly video appointments with a mental health consultant and have met with a Tuscaloosa police officer for gun safety/ownership education twice a week. Community service is also included. Louisiana district attorney Jerry Jones declined to prosecute the pair of players. The documents also say both players were indefinitely suspended by head coach Nick Saban on May 17, but as of now there is no indication if either will miss game action.

The attorney for Alabama junior T Cam Robinson and junior CB Laurence Jones, Joe D. Guerriero, called the notion that the pair received preferential legal treatment "a bunch of hooey."

Louisiana district attorney Jerry Jones (not that one) has opted not to prosecute Robinson and Jones -- particularly important for Robinson given that he was facing a felony charge for possession of a stolen firearm -- saying "I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning." Calls of preferential treatment proceeded to ring through the rafters, but Guerriero lashed out at those in no uncertain terms. In speaking with NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, he referred to the whole case as "a waste of the court's time" and called the decision not to prosecute "justice."

Louisiana district attorney Jerry Jones said that he chose not to prosecute Alabama junior T Cam Robinson and junior CB Laurence Jones out of compassion.

"I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I'm doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning," Jones said. That might be a bit of public spin, as Ian Rapoport reported earlier on Monday that the district attorney was opting not to prosecute due to insufficient evidence, but it is a nice message nonetheless. Regardless of the reason, this is a gigantic coup for the defending champs. Robinson is a potential top-10 draft selection and a lynchpin in Bama's offense.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson will not face prosecution for charges tied to his May arrest.

Robinson and DB Laurence "Hootie" Jones" were arrested in a Louisiana park in mid-May. The pair were charged with marijuana possession as well as possession of a firearm in the presence of drugs. Robinson, alone, was also facing a potentially devastating felony charge for possession of a stolen firearm. Per NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the district attorney is declining to prosecute due to insufficient evidence. The 6-foot-6, 323-pound Robinson might not quite be out of the woods -- HC Nick Saban said at the SEC spring meetings that he wanted to wait until the legal process completed before reevaluating. Still, even if Robinson receives a one or two-game suspension, the Tide have dodged a major bullet here.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson and DB Laurence "Hootie" Jones' court date has been postponed.

The original date was June 16, but a make up date has not been set. Head coach Nick Saban has said he will wait on the legal system before deciding a punishment. Robinson and Jones were arrested on May 17. Both face a marijuana charge and Robinson faces a felony charge for possessing a stolen gun.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that junior T Cam Robinson's case is "not really what it seems to be."

"It's the first time Cam has ever had an issue or a problem. We're handling it and managing it internally and making him do things to hopefully change his behavior, Saban said. He added that he "wants to see how this whole legal thing plays out" before making a decision on Robinson's status with the team. Robinson and DB Hootie Jones were arrested at a West Monroe, Louisiana, park in mid-May and charged with marijuana possession and possessing a handgun in the presence of drugs. Robinson is also facing a felony charge for possession of a stolen firearm. ESPN's Chris Low is reporting that Robinson did not know the gun was stolen when he bought it last year.

Speaking at the Regions Tradition Pro-Am on Wednesday, Alabama HC Nick Saban refused to dive into detail in regard to the arrest of T Cam Robinson.

"We [discipline] internally, it’s not something that we do publicly and we’re not gonna do it today," Saban said. Robinson and DB Hootie Jones are scheduled for a June 16 arraignment hearing regarding weapons charges stemming from their Tuesday arrest in West Monroe, Louisiana. Saban wouldn't delve into specifics, but did at least hint at his mindset, saying, "Discipline is not necessarily just punishment, which a lot of people view it that way. It’s how do you change somebody’s behavior so they have a better chance to be successful."
